The Encounter – 26

Carol was the envy of all her friends.  They complained how their husbands wouldn’t let them do this, or demanded that, on and on a long list of grievances that Carol had never experienced.

Carol felt blessed.

She had met her husband as a child and they had been together ever since.  Never a harsh word, never an argument, never a moment of dissent.

If she said;  “Let’s go to the lake this year…” he would say, “Alright,”

If she said, “Let’s paint the house blue,”  he agreed.

Once, after one of her friends went through a diatribe about points of view, Carol confronted Jamey.

After repeating what she had heard, questioning and confused; Jamey replied;

“I have always trusted your judgment,”  in his flat clear way.

This was not in any way, untrue.  When it came to his life, his current life, he had no opinion.

What do you think?
